Readers could ask, “If we have such advanced technologies, will we be able to predict the weather with 100% accuracy? Will we be able to know precisely what the weather will be at each point of time in every country?” In short, no.
Disasters, like earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, volcanic eruptions, forest fires, etc. have detrimental effects on national productivity and human lives causing damage, loss of property, and death. Seconds count in this business. One of the important ways to avoid these potential risks is to develop technologies for early prediction and effective reactions to disasters. Let’s take […]
Gathering information about our planet using remote-sensing technologies has rapidly evolved in recent years. Earth observation has become more technologically sophisticated and helped to monitor and predict the adverse effects of human activity on Earth. However, being useful and promising to improve the economic and social well-being is not enough to make it cost-effective. So, is it possible to build a sustainable business model for satellite imagery?
